Really, really irritated..

Bought the cards for my daughter-in-law and had to pay £1.50 because Shoreham Hypnobirthing didn't pay the right postage.

The [gift] came in the gift envelope - which meant I opened the gift when it was meant for my DiL. I think it should have been in a delivery envelope.

YOUR EXPERIENCE…

"Hypnobirthing empowered me to feel in control of my birth. It made me love my labour, I was so excited to meet my baby! It prepared both my partner and I to be of the mindset that we were about to experience something absolutely incredible and feel utterly excited by it all. Hypnobirthing gave me the power to demand massages, chocolate and whatever I wanted! Enjoy your birth, it should be an amazing experience." Hypnobirthing mum

Can you explain what is happening to me please?
What will happen if we don’t take this option?

Can you help us to understand this situations?
What effect could this have on the rest of labour?
Can you take a minute or so to explain why you want to do this and what the effect will be?

FEEDBACK 💛

Link in bio to book your space - what have you got to loose ⭐️

"We have recently finished a hypnobirthing course of 4 sessions with Vicki. As we are first time parents we weren't quite sure what to expect but I can honestly say we feel calm, confident and informed. Vicki has a lovely manner which makes you feel at ease as soon as you meet her. It is clear she is passionate about what she does and keeps up to date with the latest developments in maternity care…”

"My husband and I have just completed the 4-week Hypnobirthing course with Vicki at Shoreham Hypnobirthing. I cannot begin to express the difference it has given us both on the perspective of birth. I was absolutely terrified about giving birth to my baby, but now I am excited and cannot wait to use the techniques we have learnt over the sessions. Vicki delivered all the sessions to us via Zoom due to Covid restrictions and she had such a warm, gentle, and relaxed personality. I could not recommend her and the course enough! It is amazing!!!"

"Both, my husband and I couldn’t recommend Shoreham Hypnobirthing enough!
Don’t be put off by the term hypnobirthing. We felt that the course gave us so much useful information about the process of labour as well as range of tools to approach labour in a calm and positive way, regardless of different eventualities and potential changes along the way to original birth preferences. Vicki is super passionate and so knowledgeable and we both feel so much more prepared, confident and very excited for the birth of our first baby."

"Vicki was great and very accommodating - being able to fit around us and doing the course over two-week period at the weekend and in the run up to Christmas! She even turned up with biscuits! The course gave me the confidence to go in to the process knowing that I would be in control and able to focus my mindset to have the perfect birth, which I did!" First time mum from Shoreham Hypnobirthing

Moms are magical. ✨⁠
We give and give and give. We love beyond measure. We sacrifice, but we also wouldn't change any of it for the world because it is the best thing that we have ever done. Being a mom. ⁠
Love isn't a big enough word to describe what parents feel and do. It's the biggest love there is. And we're so lucky to be able to share that love with the world. ❤️⁠

📖 KGH Quote of the Week 📖
.

“Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear."

Jane Weideman
.

We live in a world where the fear of birth is at an all-time high for parents and self-confidence appears to be incredibly low. I see parents who have given up on the idea of having a birth that they have control over and especially given up the idea that the experience can be anything less than an ordeal. With so much information thrown at them and so many horror stories that are easily within reach, is it any wonder that so many new parents look upon their due date with apprehension? Every element of the pregnancy and birth seems simply out of their control.
.

Teaching those expecting that they can create the best state of mind for pregnancy and birth, giving them the tools to approach birth as a positive experience is what KGH focuses on the most. Whilst it can’t promise a painless birth, you just have to look at the testimonials from mothers who tried KGH to realise that it is the gift of confidence and a feeling of control that are the most important elements they have taken from their experience. A birth can be a wonderful experience.

"Fear is a common emotion during pregnancy and labour – especially for first time Mama’s who may not know what to expect. “We don’t talk enough about the emotional state of the mother” and this mother is responsible for producing the hormones that initiate, help and progress labour. “We are the only species of mammal that can doubt its capacity to give birth.”
This isn’t just a talk about the role of fear in modern birth but also, how we can reduce that fear to
have a more calm and empowered birth." Ina May Gaskin

⭐️ Check out my last post for the stages of labour ⭐️

🔑 Remember practise is the key to hypnobirthing 🔑

Suggestions for hypnobirthing practice…

On your own:
- Calm Breathing
- Listening to the guided relaxation MP3s (on loudspeaker so your baby can hear it too)
- Practice some UFO positions for birth
- Positive Affirmations – display them and say them out loud
- Visualizations to accompany breathing
- Visualizations of your baby’s perfect birth
- Down Breathing – practice on the toilet
- Fear release confidence and calmness track
- Read the Hypnobirthing Book
- Picturing baby in the perfect position for birth – Head down, hands on heart, chin to chest,
back to belly
- Pelvic floor exercises (NHS Squeezy app) focus on the release
- Perineal Massage (from 36 weeks)

Together:
- Light touch massage
- Listening to guided relaxations
- Calm Breathing
- Discuss your birth preferences using the picture prompts
- Birth Partners record a relaxation
- Calm breathing for 40 to 60 seconds (average length of a surge)
- Positive thoughts
- Watching the birth films from the Members Area at shorehamhypnobirthing.com
- Reading positive birth stories

Hope that helps,

What have you got to loose?

Join a group and change your birth ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Why Hypnobirthing?

“Hypnobirthing is not about having the perfect birth; it is about having a positive birth experience and making informed choices about your own birth; from a place of confidence not fear. It really does make a difference to the start of parenthood.”

“We now feel very confident in our birth choices and our understanding of how we can turn this birth experience into something more positive than we had the first time around”

“We are really glad we chose Shoreham Hypnobirthing for our hypnobirthing classes. Vicki was
welcoming and communicative from the moment we contacted her.
We found her sessions informative, engaging and supportive. Throughout Vicki has been happy to
individualise sessions to our needs and questions.
The sessions have given us the confidence and tools to practice.
We now feel more relaxed, empowered and prepared for the birth of our baby.” December, 2020
“We are having our first baby and it really felt like a journey into the unknown! I had been
recommended Vicki and hypnobirthing and as both my partner and I were very fearful of birth I
thought it was worth a go! Well I can say it is the best thing we have done in preparation for this
baby Vicki has answered every crazy question we’ve had and taught me to be excited about the birth
and believe in myself to be able to do it calmly and confidently with my partners help (who also
knows now what he should be doing throughout too) I can’t imagine going into this without
hypnobirthing and Vicki’s help and shall recommend to all! Thank you so much!” November, 2020

Any questions, just ask.

WHAT • TO • EXPECT

⭐️ Do you know what to expect for each of the stages of labour?

⭐️ Have you planned for what to do in each stage?

⭐️ Do you know how to remain calm and comfortable?

⭐️ How long does each stage typically last?

⭐️ How can you conserve energy and ensure you are in a great position for birth?

💡 Being informed and prepared is the best way to prep for a positive experience 💡

Hopefully this guide helps for what to expect for each of the stages of labour and how you can begin to prepare.

H E L L O 👋🏼

Before falling pregnant with my first son, I think I had the view that birth is painful and something to be feared. However, early on in my pregnancy I started to challenge these views and this is when I came across hypnobirthing. The more I read the more it began to make sense to me. Having grown up on a farm I was so used to seeing animals give birth and began to question why it is any different for humans than any other mammals.

I excitedly signed up for a hypnobirthing course with my partner. After the first session exploring the history of birth and the science behind it, I was hooked! I left each session with a 'lightbulb' moment and was talking about hypnobirthing to anyone who would listen. My partner began quite sceptical, however we left each session more and more excited to practise the skills we were learning. I felt like the relaxations helped me to connect with both my partner and my baby. I no longer felt afraid to give birth - something I never thought I'd say.

Three years on, and two positive births later, I decided to train as a KGHypnobirthing practitioner to help other couples to have a positive birth experience. Hypnobirthing is now listed on the Worthing hospital maternity notes as one of the methods for pain relief therefore hopefully more and more women are hearing about how to change their births.

Hypnobirthing just makes sense to me. It is simply listening to your body, understanding the physical process and using relaxation techniques to release fear.

I have another free taster event in February and still space on my Better Birth Workshop on Sunday 13th February at @theyogaandwellness on #shorehamhighstreet
